Chiropractor Dr. Nicholas A. Grande not only treats chronic pain—he used to suffer from it himself. Familiar with the connection between chronic pain and an unhealthily sedentary lifestyle from personal experience, Dr. Grande strives to alleviate aches and tightness, and to increase his clients' ranges of motion. He draws on diverse techniques to achieve these ends, from cold-laser treatments and massages to instrument-assisted spinal manipulation, which is much more effective than manipulating spines with a backpack full of monkeys.
Though she devotes much of her free time to running, cycling, and loving animals, Doctor of Chiropractic Ginger Pellerin devotes her office hours to maintaining healthy backs and bodies. Wielding certifications in chiropractic sports medicine, prenatal and pediatric chiropractic, and the Webster technique, she addresses spinal ailments with a long-term aim to—in the words of the Association of Chiropractic Colleges—help the body "heal itself without the use of drugs and surgery." To ensure a thorough approach, she and her staffers often complement their treatments with secondary medical evaluations. When clients first arrive at Pellerin Chiropractic, they're ushered into private treatment rooms for initial consultations that explore health history, identify current issues and concerns, and introduce treatment options. Next comes an exam to pinpoint affected vertebrae and soft tissues that lack the strength to speak up for themselves. The doctors use spinal adjustments and soft-tissue therapy to reduce symptomatic stress on the first visit, and reveal complete findings from the exam and any x-rays on the second visit. During additional sessions, they discuss long-term treatments to help relieve spinal stress, heal tissues, and normalize bodily functions; they might also work their patients' joints using extended physical therapy.
The doctor at Terrapin Care Center realigns spines and improves posture with chiropractic biophysics techniques.

In addition to its chiropractic practitioner, Terrapin Care Center houses massage therapists who mollify sinews with smooth strokes that increase circulation, reduce swelling, and ease injuries.
